    Good job Vince, and you're right on about the cold saw...I can't imagine going back and using the abrasive saw again, after my Makita 1230.

    Looks good. Flux core is the way to go with galvanized. Looks like you "had to buy" some new clamps, you can never have too many clamps.

    I always grind off the galvanized before I weld, be safe.

    Looks good!!! Only as a reminder for everybody, be careful when welding galvanized. It will definitley make you sick if inhaled.

    The Hand rail

    I'm using a Lincoln 180 set at a and 1.5. Using fluxcore (outside) .035 Welding very thin galvanized stock (16 ga or 1/16" )
    This is my first hand rail and there is not any shake in it.The welds are not as nice as I've seen on here but with stuff that thin I am sure I got plenty of penetration.
    Plum and straight right?






    I should finish up in the morning...not too bad for a couple of cabinet guys.
    I did ask my boss if there was enough left over in the budget to get me a drycut saw...Told me to look on ebay and get one.
